Student Stories


My experience at the University of Great Falls has been very fulfilling. I have achieved so many goals that I never thought were possible. And, through the Master's program, I am continuing on the road to fulfilling even more of my dreams through UGF. I graduated in May with a B.A. in Psychology and an A.S. in Addictions Counseling. I am now continuing my education in graduate school to receive my Master's degree in Counseling. One of the most positive aspects of the education that I have received at UGF is the student/teacher interaction. I really get a sense that the teachers and my advisor care about my education, experience, and ultimate achievement of my degrees.
